Austin is part of a elite group of wrestlers who were such big stars in their prime that even now into their retirement years they still have to be treated as a big deal to keep their value high when they make these occasional special appearances.

I'm fine with that, I don't think anybody wants to see Austin come out and get beaten down it would kill the bad ass aura his character has always had, they want to see him come out, drink beer, get the crowd pumped with his promo and then stunner someone. Likewise if The Rock ever appears people want him to electrify with his promo work and then hit a rock bottom and peoples elbow on somebody. Guys like Rock and Austin have earned the right to be booked this way due to how over they were and still are, also its not like they are so old they cant be taken seriously in the ring, I mean nobody expects to see a 75 year old Austin still taking people out with stunners.

Also I saw people online complaining about AJ taking a stunner from a old guy, well nobody was damaged by what happed, Stone Cold hit the stunner on Styles from a sneak attack position its not like he battered AJ in a fair fight. The booking of this angle was spot on, the crowd ate it up.

It looks pretty obvious to me that this will lead to him being the ref for the Owens vs Rollins match.

It would be unfair for him to take a bigger match away from the refs who are around all year for this big moment and it's got the slight link with Owens using his finisher.

Adding him to ref duties would give the storyline a boost because it's not that exciting.
